    I'm a long-time geek with 2 kids and a wife who are amazingly bright. Lately, I've been cycling instead of flying, not that it was much less expensive...

    I'm 6'5", about 196cm, with a 36" (92cm) inseam, and about 275LBS.
    Seat Height: 25" From sole to top of knee while sitting
    Leg Room: 27" from backside to front of knee
    Seat Pitch: Legroom PLUS thickness of the seat!!!
    Seat Width: 19" if my pockets are empty.
    Headroom: My torso needs 39" from the seat to the top of the cabin.

    Obviously, some angles can be factored in here, but if my lower legs have to bend back, then it limits my ability to operate the rudder.

    So, I can fly a DA-40, but if it's G1000, the panel edge cuts into my leg.
    C172 is okay if seat rails go way back.
    PA28 is okay since the yoke comes up as it comes back.
    C152 is a single seater, with me straddling the rudders.
    etc etc.
